I'm sure you all recognize "Sandy Paws" by now. Sandy Paws is our cover photo, and can also be found on page 10 of the 2009 Paws For Charity Art Book.

Michelle is a writer and photographer now living in Philadelphia. She spent her youth in Virginia, received her Bachelor’s degree in English Literature at the University of Mary Washington, and completed her Master’s Degree in Women’s Studies at the University of Oxford. She has traveled the world with pen and camera in hand, and her short stories appear in a number of literary anthologies. Last year, Michelle exhibited her photographs in several venues in Philadelphia, including City Hall and the Tiberino Memorial Museum. She is honored to have multiple shows already planned in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey for 2009.

Michelle lives with her husband, two little boys, two dogs, and a vast amount of unsorted laundry, but she believes the chores can wait. She prefers to spend her time laughing, dreaming, playing, writing, and capturing mood and moment with her camera.And here's what our cover model looks like!

I'm so glad you posted photos of the cover girl. It's nice to put a face with the paws!

I'm so glad I had a reason to go through and find that shot of Sheba with the gigantic puppy ears! She has no idea that her feet are famous :-D
